GLENDALE — As the bloodshed and destruction in Syria rages on with no end in sight, the conflict has drawn in global and regional superpowers whose diametrically opposing expectations on how to end the war and the future of Syria have deepened the crisis. The ever growing sectarian tone of the civil war has added a very dangerous element to the mix with the potential of catastrophic consequences for the whole region.
How does the current situation reflect upon the Armenian community in Syria? How will the sectarian tone of the civil war and the escalation of sectarian violence in the region affect the Armenian communities of the Middle East?
To examine these and other questions in depth, the Armenian Council of America is organizing a public forum and has invited Dr. Harry Sarafian to conduct a lecture on Friday July 12 at the Glendale Central Library at 8 p.m. (222 E Harvard St., Glendale, CA 91205) The lecture will be conducted primarily in Armenian. Admission is free.
